As the war in Syria continues, around 470,000 people have lost their lives. Of them, approximately 50,000 are children.
Aylan Kurdi, the boy whose body washed up on a beach on Turkey, and Omran Daqneesh, the five-year-old who was pictured in an ambulance bleeding due to injuries, are just two of these many children.
Traumatized kids in Aleppo are now calling on superheroes to save their lives since fantasy is all they can turn to in order to escape reality.
“Become a real-life superhero, Save Aleppo!” one placard reads.
“Now might be a good time to get angry. Stop Russia bombing Aleppo” says another.
Some of the posters show superheroes such as The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and Capt. America, among others in various parts of the destroyed city.
Just in the beginning of this week, airstrikes killed 20 members of the same family, including nine children. Death tolls continue to rise as the situation is worsening. For now Russia and Syria are halting airstrikes on the city.
